Whenever I  see a Honey Nut Cheerios commercial, I wonder why it is claimed to be so healthy?  And there are so many  commercials for this cereal.  And from what I can tell, it also  has a high glycemic index value  of 74.  (>70 is considered high). Granted, many common cereals also have a high glycemic index, but this particular one is always touted to be heart healthy.  In my opinion, this is certainly an overstatement.  Check the real Nutrition Facts below.
